Re: 1990 chevy bucket seats swap

You'll have to drill holes for the buckte's inner mounts and the center counsole, but it is easy to do. I don't think the floor has any premade marking on it where you will need to drill, so just measure twice or so with the brackets, drill, bolt them in. I would use a hard thick washer or plate for the inner seat bolts to give it more strength in the floor mount support.

I swapped buckets in my 94 that came from the factory with a bench. Use the risers as a template. I used thick plate steel underneath the body for reinforcement. The floorboards are actually thin

Same here. I did a Tahoe interior swap into my old 99í crewcab. Almost all of the corresponding bolt locations had dimples in the floor from above and a welded nut underneath.
I used 92 seat frame as I didnít have the wiring for the lower seats and they still lined up.
